first christmas pressy :)

got this package in our mailbox last week, our first christmas pressy from esthershawn beautiful christmas album with so many wonderful songs, thank you, Esther! am so touched!! it even included one of my all time favourite christmas song!!

We Are The Reason
David Meece

As little children
We would dream of Christmas morn
Of all the gifts and toys
We knew we'd find
But we never realized
A baby born one blessed night
Gave us the greatest gift of our lives

We were the reason
That He gave His life
We were the reason
That He suffered and died
To a world that was lost
He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live

As the years went by
We learned more about gifts
The giving of ourselves
And what that means
On a dark and cloudy day
A man hung crying in the rain
All because of love, all because of love

I've finally found the reason for living
It's in giving every part of my heart to Him
In all that I do every word that I say
I'll be giving my all just for Him, for Him

He is my reason to live



this song alone brought back so much memory of my younger days, when i first became a christian in brisbane, queensland, during that time we (2nd sis, brother, and myself) were attending the very conservative brisbane chinese christian church...reminded me of my first christian concert in the year 1990, i think it was a 18th birthday treat from my 2nd sis when she bought us the tickets to watch David Meece in concert with our church's youth group...i was so blown away by his music and the way he played his piano and keyboard, and sang such beautiful songs at the same time! i had never attended any charismatic church (was taught to stay away in fact) but during the concert, the testimonies from David Meece, his many songs, esp. this one, just touched me so deeply...of what God had done for us, for me...i missed my younger christian days when i was so in fire and so on for Him, so involved in the many ministries it was great joy....sometimes i wonder where did i go?? what happened? who am i? gosh the many questions that this simple song just brought back to me...what have i become? how i wish i could go back to the past to re-live my younger days and my youth...
